This is block #8 (My goodness! Has it been 8 weeks already?) in the Friday Block Party. (see sidebar) It is called Morning Star 2. It's a nice block, fairly easy and it looks good. The pattern was for a 12 inch block (finished). I started this block on Saturday, but put it away almost immediately. I don't know where my mind was as I was cutting the fabric, because I cut the triangles (the green/turquoise ones) for the hourglass blocks a quarter of an inch too small. Guess I had too much on my mind. I didn't have time for it all weekend, but this morning I took another look at the block and decided it was too easy for me to give up on. So I completed it using some bigger triangles. I think it turned out great!
Perhaps I was confused with the '2' part of this block's name. Maybe I thought it meant that I had to make 2 blocks, because with the too-small pieces I made another block - a 9 inch one this time. I used some softer baby colours, since the 9-inch blocks from this block party will be used for a baby quilt. I just made all of the nine sections of this block 3 1/2in. unfinished. It turned out good too, I think.
